he citizens of the Greenfield area and its Chamber of Commerce would like to welcome you to their community. Come see why we are a small town with a lot to offer. Before we show you what we are, let’s look back to where we began.
Settlers from Tennessee, Kentucky and the Carolinas brought their families to the area in 1841 and found this area to be a good place to settle down and start a community. Greenfield was to be the county seat and soon construction began on a new courthouse A year later the courthouse was open for business in the center of Greenfield’s square.
Today the courthouse is still the center of our square and you will see many of our historic brick buildings. The brick was all made here in the Greenfield brick yard.
Greenfield is a melting pot of Dade County history. The Hulston Mill built in 1840 offers a hands on experience of how life was back in the 1800’s when corn was ground with the power of running spring water. There are old log cabins to see, an amphitheater, camping facilities and miles of horseback riding trails to explore. Come spend an afternoon in the Dade County Library located in a historical house, or check out the museum, also located in a historical house, and let us share our history with you.
But history is not all we are about. With a population around 1,500 and a Chamber that has 100+ members to proudly support its community, we are focused on our future. Visit with our local realtors and find a perfect spot to build your dream home to enjoy our laid back life in Dade County that is rich in agriculture.
